Do you plan on going to the reopened parks?

The City of San Marcos reopened its riverfront parks on May 22, following a nearly two-month closure.

The parks were originally closed on March 24 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The city’s parks will open with operating hours between 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. for active recreation activities — only running, walking and enjoying the river. Individuals may utilize the river for active recreation such as tubing, kayaking, canoeing or swimming. Dog walking and exercising is permitted on park trails open to the public. Areas designated by orange construction fencing are off limits. The city’s playgrounds, basketball courts and pavilions in all parks remain closed. With the parks’s reopening, the city is advising all visitors to use caution and exercise responsibly to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, which includes maintaining social distancing, washing hands and wearing a mask or face coverings when distancing isn’t possible.
